Prospecting for Diamonds

Prospecting for Diamonds
We found a really nice 2.5 ct Diamond on this island with hand sampling. I decided to bring the 10" dredge to a channel just offshore. The river currents on big rivers is stronger than you would guess.

To keep the recovery barge and the dredge secure we sunk concrete barrels for anchors and they worked perfectly.

We spent a month offshore here while we prospected for Diamonds. Working in remote reaches of the world always has its challenges. Visit my web site for more information.

Bulk testing in some hungry ground

Bulk testing in some hungry ground
Les is looking a little bit disappointed. We were doing a bulk sample of some promising gravel we were interested in and it turned out to be a bust.

Placer mining is not always a home run by any means. It is a way of life that is a lot of hard work and hope. One thing for sure is we will have a lot of welding and repairs which is part of the mining program.

You always have to have a couple of irons in the fire with mining. You just never know what is going to be a bust or something really promising. And then there is always the price of gold fluctuating. Lets hope the gold price stays up!!!

Scratchin out a living in Montana

We are blessed to be able to scratch out a living from our great treasure state of Montana. Montana
Was such a great part of our United States history.

Placer mining is fast becoming an industry of the past here. We pride ourselves to make the land better than we found it. The wildlife that grazes right next to our project is amazing, and we are glad to see the ranches cattle getting fat.

We hope the summer is good to us, and all the folks that are part of our operation!


Diamonds of India

Diamonds of India
This was a real nice diamond we found in India. The Diamonds were far and few as we were working a low grade deposit. This is a really nice diamond but it had some Illmanite inclusions. These are also clues to the origin of this particular Diamond.

Uncle Bill is holding this fine specimen. He was a team player on our quest for Diamonds on an Indian Diamond project.
